    Don't leave it in the sun or in a bag! that will add to the moisture content instead of pulling it out. You need to put it in a DRY bowl of rice for at least 24 hours. Not covered though. And def. not in the sun that will cause allot more damage then it will good.

Also after leaving it in the rice for 24 hours you will want to connect the iPod to your computer. It should come right on, but if it does not try resetting it. Below I have posted a step by step on resetting an iPod just in case you need the information. If it still will not turn on at all, leave it connected for at least four hours. Then attempt to reset it again. If none of these steps bring you to a resolution, you have a hardware issue and will need to either service it or replace it. I do hope this helps though. Please let me know how it turns out.





Learning how to reset or restart your iPod.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time are preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.

My ipod got got in the washer and got washed


Yes there is something you can do. Put rice in a sealable container and place your ipod in the rice. try to cover the ipod completely. the rice is a good sponge for water and it is almost the only way you can fix a waterlogged ipod.

Okay so my mom washed my clothes with out asking me and...


the warranty wont cover water damage.

No they wont repair it for free, if at all.
Theres water inside and its probably done some damage already, you would have to take it apart and dry it completely, it might improve, it might not..

let me know how that goes.

I washed my Ipod


Apple won't cover any kind of accidental damage and they will be able to tell that it was water damage if you send it in. The only thing really you can attempt is to put it in a bowl of DRY rice for 24 hours. Sometimes this will pull enough of the liquid out of the internal components. Good luck I learned that trick while working as an apple tech rep and have used the rice trick once on a cell phone and the phone works to this day

My ipod nano chromatic ha water damage from the washer


Sometimes if you leave it sit for several days or so it will dry out completely and start to work again. I don't recommend charging it or plugging it in for several days or so as if there is still water in it, it may fry some of the chips. It may be beyond repair though.

Ipod nano 4GB is WET


Greetings Goldenlily13,

As a mom who did the exact same thing to her 14 year olds Ipod, I can totally empathize. However the only solution I came up with was to purchase a new Ipod. My daughter still has her original one due to sentimental value, it was engraved. It still has not ever worked again and this happened in March.

Sorry I don't have a better solution.

sorry, but you're probably screwed. Once wet, the connections inside start to corrode and then it's junk. Sell it on E-Bay as broken/part/repair. Be honest and let people know that it got wet. The case and a few parts may still be usable. Then take the money you get and buy a used working one off e-bay. you can usually get nanos in good used condition for $80 to $100
